From Dr. William Withering's research on foxglove in the 18th century to recent extracts from the yew for chemotherapy and anti- inflammatory papain from the pineapple; the talk follows a fascinating history.

The isolation of important alkaloids from Aconite, Cinchona, Henbane and other herbs from 1803 onwards and dominance of opium derivatives in Victorian medicine, contributed to healthcare today. Work on salicylates in Willow, Meadowsweet, Wintergreen and Birch has now provided popular pain relief. In the 20th century interest in Chinese herbs has added ephedrine and Ginkgo extracts.

Chemical synergy in whole herbs and the result of using isolated extracts, environmental considerations and folklore are illustrated with slides of the plants which have led to modern drugs. A thought-provoking lecture.

Following a request from a local farmer, work began on discovering and writing the landscape history of the manor of East Dean, near Singleton. Aerial photographs (LiDAR) taken as part of the South Downs National Park’s Secrets of the High Woods project have been overlain on the detailed maps drawn up in 1597 and more recently. The written records have been extensively trawled and the memories of residents have been recorded. The talk will reveal the results of this work and outline how the techniques can be applied to the study of any other area.
